Love Songs

All I Do   

I wish
    I wish you still loved me
I wish
    That everything could be
    just like it was
    oh please
    bring back those days, oh please

We loved
    have you forgotten how?
We loved
    I can remember now
    those magic days
    Those hours
    were magic with you flower

        All I do is wish for you
        All I do is wish for you




We danced
    The two of us alone
I danced
    a moth around a flame
    and that was you
    Remember?
    These nights I dream of you

But now
    who are you holding now?
Yes who
    who dances with you now?
    Do you recall
    at all
    the things we used to do?
